the mold. jenna: we have the former ambassador to the u.n. speaking with us. so what does the state? >> well, i think that nothing less than the balance of power could be changing in front of our eyes. this assertion of the air defense identification zone extends over the territory well removed from the chinese mainland and in particular it covers islands that are held by anne claimed by japan. so there is a lot of aggressive territorial claims with how other countries respond to it. it will either be a success where they will back off. jenna: how are they doing so far? >> vice president biden was in japan before going on to china. while he said that the chinese declaration of this could lead to mistakes and was dangerous, he did not reject it explicitly, which you should have. the administration told the american civil air carriers to give china notification when their planes transit to avoid mistakes. japan and south korea have told their commercial carriers not to give notice. so anyway, we are acknowledging it. what we want is to resolve this peacefully, but i believe that china

that the president has announced ignores not only u.s. law but ignores the u.n. sanctions that are in place. and it also ignores the fact that iran has not made any concessions in this area in the last 30 years. it also ignores the position that this deal puts israel in, one that is untenable and more impossible than any i have seen in my lifetime. the naivity of this administration in dealing with iran is something that is simply breathtaking. mr. speaker, i would just suggest to you that if iran gains nuclear weapons, we will need a new calendar. it will change our reality in the world that much. and i would say to you that while there's still time, we need to act. d you know, mr. speaker, there is that moment in the life of every problem when it is big enough to be seen and still small enough to be addressed but in terms of iran's nuclear weapons pursuit, that window is closing quickly. and whatever this body can do, whatever this president can do to prevent iran from gaining a nuclear weapons capability must be done soon because soon they will have the ability to ignore our treaties and
